We offer a free Beginner Learn to Skate program in the fall. This is a fun program for children with little to no skating experience. The goal is to have children gain confidence on the ice while developing their skating skills. The FREE 10 week program will be offered on Saturday mornings starting in September. There is no age limit, although the majority of skaters are ages four and up.
